$username = “myself”
$password = ConvertTo-SecureString “password” -AsPlainText -Force
$cred = New-Object -TypeName System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -ArgumentList $username, $password
$Computer = hostname

# Start the scan!
$result=Get-ChildItem C:\Windows\Temp\ | Where-Object {$_.Name -like ‘sam_ref*.wav'}
echo $result

if($result) {
Write-Host “found”
# Email the result
Send-MailMessage -From [email protected] -To [email protected] -Subject “SCCM File Found For $Computer” -Credential $cred -Body ”
Time Stamp: $(Get-Date)
Host Name: $Computer
